Bryan County football coach Allen Cartwright intentionally scheduled this week’s home game against McIntosh County Academy to get ready for Region 2-AA play.

The two teams were region foes a year ago and both finished in the top four in 2-AA to gain playoff trips. The Redskins beat the Buccaneers 20-19 after McIntosh scored a touchdown as time expired but failed on its two-point conversion.

McIntosh dropped to Class A this season and Cartwright said he expects them to be one of the top teams in the state at that level.

“They’re a big, physical team and they return a lot of players,” he said. “They’re well coached and it will be a good challenge before we start our region games.”

The Bucs are 1-1 after losing 32-7 to Clinch County and beating Brantley County 48-6.

The Redskins’ game last week against Windsor Forest was cancelled due to weather and will not be made up as it was not a region game.

“We had a good week getting ready for Windsor Forest so it’s a little disappointing that we didn’t get to play,” Cartwright said. “But we put in some good work on fundamentals and now we’ll focus on a game plan.”

Willie Lavant and Markez Bostick each scored two touchdowns for Bryan County in its 33-14 season-opening win against Beach.

Friday’s game time is 7:30 p.m. After this week, the Redskins face seven consecutive Region 2-AA opponents.
